Acer eLock Management

 

Acer eLock Management is simple yet effective utility that allows you to lock

 

 

removable storage, optical and floppy drive devices to ensure that data can't be 
stolen while your system is unattended.

Removable Storage Devices — includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB 
flash drives, USB MP3 drives, USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk 
drives, and any other removable storage devices that can be mounted as a 
file system when plugged into the system.

Optical Drive Devices — includes any kind of CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, HD-DVD 
or Blu-ray drive devices.

Floppy Drive Devices — 3.5-inch floppy drives only. 

To use Acer eLock Management, the Empowering Technology password must 
be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the devices types. Lock(s) will 
immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain after 
rebooting, until removed.

Note: If you lose the Empowering Technology password, there is 
no method to reset it except by reformatting your system. Make 
sure to remember or write down your password.
